Singapore – CASBAA and international media and technology law firm Olswang have launched Singapore’s first online directory of digital content available from legitimate sources. The free access pilot directory allows users to search for content by genre, device or for content that is free.

The directory was launched in conjunction with “Digital, Legal and Anywhere – TV in Singapore Today”, a new report showcasing the audio-visual content available through non-traditional media platforms and delivery mechanisms in Singapore. In the course of researching the report, Olswang found that the offerings were far more prolific and advanced than many were aware. A key problem however appeared to be consumer-awareness of this. Therefore the directory aims to be a first step towards addressing this problem.

“The digital landscape is very fragmented, so hopefully we can make it easy with this directory so that it fits into the consumers’ lives. So this is the first step to try and do that,” said Elle Todd, Partner, Olswang.
